The real-life setting for a glow-in-the-dark sci-fi spectacular is two hours south of Auckland and the same distance west of Rotorua under Waitomo’s rolling green hills. Here caves are filled with arachnocampa luminosa (that’s New Zealand’s indigenous glowworms to you) that give off a subtle blue glow due to a chemical reaction occurring in their abdomen. Enjoy a boat ride that will take you through this galaxy of living lights, strong on sticky webs above.

I recommend Black Odyssey tour of Waitomo Caves. It is challenging but you get to see and experience so many things like "glow warms", flying fox (zip line in "american english"), swimming inside of the caves etc, etc.

I went on one of the more extreme caving adventure options, Haggis Honking Holes. It was incredible. We got to see glowworms, rappel down a waterfall, and crawl around a lot!
